Put the pedal to the (plastic) metal
Despite being marketed primarily at kids, the Skylanders games are surprisingly deep action RPGs that players of any age can enjoy. Because they rely on physical toys, they can often get quite expensive, but if you act fast, you can snap up a Skylanders Superchargers Starter Pack on Xbox One for just $19 delivered from Microsoft's eBay store. These normally retail for around $50, so you'll be getting yourself quite the deal.

Honey, I shrunk the Master Chief
Seeing as Halo was originally going to be an RTS for Mac before being rebooted into an Xbox FPS, it made sense that the series would go back to its strategic roots with Halo Wars on the Xbox 360. Admittedly, it made slightly less sense when Halo Wars 2 was announced for Xbox One and PC, given how lukewarm the reception had been to the original game. Still, if you've ever dreamed of leading an army of Scorpion tanks into battle against a fleet of Covenant Wraiths, there's only one game for it, and this week it can be yours for just $29 delivered from British retailer Base.com. Just bear in mind that Base lists its prices with the UK-only Value Added Tax (VAT) included, and it won't be removed until you enter an Australian address at checkout.
|Halo Wars 2||Xbox One||$29.00 delivered|
|Torment: Tides of Numenera||PS4||$22.11 delivered|
|Steins; Gate Zero||PS4||$19.53 delivered|
|Gears of War 4||Xbox One||$25.02 delivered|
Mid-year madness never ends
EB Games continues with its Mid-Year Madness sale this week. You can check out our top picks in last week's cheap game deals, but if you have a Wii U hanging around in your house and you haven't checked out Rayman Legends, it's going for a steal at just $9. As one of the best 2D platformers outside of the Mario games, you won't be disappointed.
Cheap COVFEFE for everyone
'Covfefe' is the word of the week, apparently, and eBay has jumped onboard the meme train with $10 off any purchase above $50 by entering the typo as a coupon code at checkout. For games, the Target eBay store is the best place to make use of the discount, dropping a number of recent releases to historically-low prices. You'll want to choose click and collect if you can, though, as the $9 postage fee effectively ruins the discount. Here are our top picks:
|Mario Kart 8 Deluxe||Nintendo Switch||$59.00|
|Mass Effect: Andromeda||PS4/Xbox One||$45.00|
|Forza Horizon 3||Xbox One||$49.00|
|Battlefield 1||PS4/Xbox One||$45.00|
